The AN-2 model I built is from GPM. You can order it here:
https://sklep.gpm.pl/wyprzedaz/an-2-...odzona-okladka

but a better version of the Antonov AN-2 Bi plane is from Orlik
https://orlik-models.pl/nr-75-samolo...adaniowy-an-2/

or purchase from GPM as well:
https://sklep.gpm.pl/modele-kartonow...torlikquot-075

Both have their own laser cut frames as well as wheels you can purchase.

I have the Orlik kit and accessories and will build it one of these days as well.

Isaac

Music Wire Sizes and Sources

If I may go back to Isaac's Post #16 (http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/713292-post16.html), have you, Isaac, or anyone, ever figured out which gauges of music wire are most suitable for various airplane scales?

I'm thinking around .012" (0.3mm, 30 AWG) for 1/100; 0.15" (0.38mm, 28 AWG) for 1/72 - 1/48; and .020" (0.5mm, 25 AWG) for 1/33.

As for sources, in the United States K&S Precision metals sells straight length of music wire in 0.015" and 0.02" but not 0.012 (as far as I know). Micro-Mark sells brass wire in those and other sizes, but it's too soft and the wrong color.

I'm not sure if my information is accurate. It's just based on my observation of various music wire sizes. I hope that someone reading this has actually done some measuring to determine which sizes are best for various scales.

No matter Don, today I have been looking at the strings of my acoustic guitar and I think they can be used for the smallest scales. Also in Chinese shops I have found aluminum wire that can be set as rigid. What I have clear is that the normal thread, never again Thanks again for your advice and interest A greeting
